Mattress Protectors: A Safeguard for Your Mattress and Your Health


They’re virtually unavoidable. Whether it’s pollen, pollution, dander or dust mites, our bodies are constantly bombarded with allergy-causing particles. We are even exposed while we’re sleeping. While we slumber, we perspire, produce oil and shed dead skin cells, and these plus dust mites can get into your mattress and can eventually lead to sneezing, runny nose and shortness of breath. You might not even know that it’s your mattress that’s the problem!

The good news is that you can easily reduce your allergen exposure while you sleep by using a high-quality mattress protector. Mattress protectors keep the allergen out of your mattress and are easily cleaned with your regular sheets to keep your sleep clean and healthy.

What to Look for in a Mattress Protector

A quality mattress protector not only keeps you and your family breathing healthier, it also increases the longevity of your mattress. When buying a mattress protector, you’ll want to look for a few key qualities, all of which are offered in our Prime 54 Mattress Protector.

  • Waterproof, yet breathable. You want to protect your mattress from sweat and liquid spills. Our Prime 54 Mattress Protector provides ultimate protection for your mattress with a laboratory-certified H2Pro®liquid-proof membrane that is 100% waterproof. To allow for breathability, our Prime 54 Protector is made of a hypoallergenic, breathable polyurethane membrane.

  • Creates a barrier from allergens without compromising comfort. Our Prime 54 Mattress Protector is made of thin, breathable, smooth weave so you the feel of your mattress won’t change. It’s quiet, comfortable and allows for airflow.

  • Ease of use. You’ll also want to ensure it has a universal fit so you aren’t struggling to take it on and off. Prime 54 Protectors come in all standard mattress sizes and have a quality elastic that ensures a secure fit for mattress depths of 6"-22". Prime 54 Mattress Protectors also come with a 15-year limited warranty, giving you some extra piece of mind.

Don’t Forget your Pillows

Your pillows also get bombarded with the same allergens as your mattress, so don’t neglect to get quality pillow protectors too. You’ll want the same features as your mattress protector – waterproof, breathable and comfortable. Our Prime 54 Pillow Protectors have all the features of our mattress protector with a special pillowcase design and zippered end so that it goes on easily and fits without shifting or bunching.

With Every Purchase, You Help Fight Malaria!

At Flip 54, we’ve made it our mission to try and help improve the lives of people who are less fortunate. As part of our mattress donation activities in Ethiopia, we became more aware of the horrors of malaria. Every two minutes, a child loses their life to malaria (Shocking isn't it). Something as simple as a bed net can help protect families from this deadly disease and save lives.

Every time someone purchases a Prime 54 Protector we give a bed net to someone in need. Life-saving bed nets are delivered by our giving partners to families who need them most.
